Qnix QX2710 better than BenQ XL2420TE 144Hz ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just watch that you could OC this QX2710 monitor but I dunno if it's worthy the price difference to get it instead of the BENQ 144hz.

Maybe seems obvious but I would like the owners opinion of something close that knew something about this easy or not doubt that I have

2 totally different monitors. One is 1440p and the other is 1080p.

 

in terms of smoothness, Qx2710 OCed will not be exactly as smooth as Benq but will be pretty close.

stupid question...is EVERY QX2710 Overclockable?
post #4 of 7
It really depends on how you are using the monitor.

For competitive pro FPS gaming, the BenQ XL2420TE will ALWAYS be better.

For everyone else playing regular games, doing work, browsing the net, watching tv/movies, the Qnix will always be better.

Fixed it for you -- there are exceptions

-- There's people who get PWM headaches with the QX2710 but do not get headaches with PWM free monitors (e.g. XL2420TE -- if choosing between just these two)
-- There's a rare few who get motion blur headaches, that really do prefer CRT's or LightBoost for everything. Drag a window, get headache.
-- If you're using addons that adds fast panning to everyday software. I prefer scrolling fast in webpages on LightBoost monitors -- I'm using a smoothscroller that allows me to speedread text while I'm scrolling a long forum page fast, without stopping scrolling. (I can't read text-in-motion on regular 60Hz or non-LightBoosted 120Hz/144Hz)
etc.

The correct phrase is "will usually", not "will always".
But /generally/, I'll agree with you

yes it's like the benq it's pushed to the limit of perfection for 1080p many optimizations

Yes.

I'll like to play FPS, not commonly play but yes. But the doubt it's that high resolution of 2560x1440 is worth than best performance 1080p.

Thanks for clarifying but I dunno what that lightboost means.

And here it comes the real question, we are here on this forum not just cuz we like hardware. Cuz we push hardware to push it performance and make worth our money more, 1440p and 120hz (OCed) on a monitor cheaper sounds like a good option but I want to check owners of this kind of monitor's opinion.

LightBoost is only applicable to the second and third bullet above. PWM-freeness is also a good reason if you already get headaches with today's computer monitors.

For those not familiar, google "lightboost". LightBoost is a strobe backlight (TFTCentral article that explains LightBoost) that eliminate motion blur during fast motion. See PHOTOS: 60Hz vs 120Hz vs LightBoost. View www.testufo.com/ghosting on a regular LCD and you will see motion blur and/or ghosting. If you prefer even less motion blur than 120Hz monitors. It also even has less motion blur than most plasmas too, and some CRT's such as FW900's. We certainly need better panel technologies such as IPS and VA panels using LightBoost.
